Shirley North SNT update – Appeal following indecent exposures in Shirley, Croydon

PC Rebecca Littlewood writes to alert people to the following appeal:

Officers investigating a series of indecent exposures on Shirley Oaks Road, Shirley, have arrested a man.

At this point officers have received four allegations of offences committed during January and February this year.

On Wednesday, 5 February, officers arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of indecent exposure. He was taken to a south London police station and was subsequently released on bail to a date in late February pending further enquiries.

The suspect is described as; white, in his 30s, approximately 5ft 10, of a medium build, with short, receding dark brown hair. He wears a black leather, biker style jacket, over a grey top, black trousers and dark footwear.

Detectives are keen to hear from anyone who believes that they may have been a victim of indecent exposure in the Shirley area and encourage victims to speak with officers, at the very least, to ensure they receive support.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, Tweet @MetCC quoting 3803877/20 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
